BCAL has been in forefront of research on mapping leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula L.) and other invasive species in Idaho using various remote sensing techniques.
BCAL graduate students Jessica Mitchell, Jacob Mundt, and Nagendra Singh have written Master of Science thesis on the topic. The results have been presented at several national conferences, as well as published in peer-reviewed journals.
